How it Works

How Convesio Scales to Handle Traffic

Convesio’s unique server technology allows us to scale your website to handle huge amounts of incoming traffic. Whether you’re hosting a live event or just having a busy Friday night, we will keep your site live and running smoothly.
  • STEP 1
  • 1. Before the traffic: WordPress runs on the minimum number of containers

    Think of a container as a mini VPS with its own dedicated resources. With Convesio, you can set the minimum and maximum numbers of containers to run on in the Dashboard.

    When traffic is low before and after an event, Convesio will run on the minimum number of containers. This means you are not using and paying for capacity you don’t need.

  • STEP 2
  • 2. A surge in traffic triggers scaling. More containers deploy to share the load

    With each additional container you 2x, 3X, 4X, etc… your resources, so WordPress keeps running fast.

    Convesio scales up automatically to handle handful to thousands of concurrent users, and back down when the traffic has subsided.  The additional capacity if charged by the hour and is capped too.

  • STEP 3
  • 3. WordPress scales across clusters of servers

    This is called horizontal scaling and difficult to achieve with a traditional VPS set up (and very expensive too).

    If a sale or other event attracts a particularly high level of visitors and extra containers fill the capacity of a physical server, additional ones are deployed.
